Before I tell you why you need to book Craig and Lydia, I must emphasize that getting a videographer is probably the best decision we made for the wedding. The day is over in a blink of an eye, but the work done by Craig and Lydia will allow my family to relive the day for years to come.

Now on to Craig and Lydia - if you did not call them up to book yet, you should now because they are booked for MONTHS in advance. That's right, a videographer that is just as popular as a wedding venue! That is a testament for how great they were :-).

From the moment that we met with Classic Video Productions, I knew that Craig and Lydia were going to take care of us. They are very professional while being two kind hearted people that want to get to know you to enhance the video experience. They were prompt the morning of the wedding the video my wife getting ready, then to capture the groomsmen getting ready, they were at our first look photographs, and blended in throughout the ceremony and reception to capture all the best moments. To top it all off, as Craig videos the day, Lydia is in their awesome tech van editing the video from Craig so they can show a 5-10 minute video to recap the day to our guests DURING the wedding. It was so cool to see the preparations, the guests, and ceremony.

Later that night and through the next day, my guests raved about the video and the professionalism of both Craig and Lydia. This was their THIRD wedding that they produced for our family alone (two of my wife's cousins weddings) and I know they will be back as my aunt, with three children, has already contacted them.

Book them today - you will not regret it.

To be honest, Craig and Lydia had to be two of the most important people at our wedding. When we told others we were thinking of hiring someone to record our wedding some people just couldn’t understand why we would "waste" our money on a videographer however I have to tell you it was by far the BEST decision we could have ever made! The instant we met Craig and Lydia we feel in love with their personalities, drive and pure love for what they do, we knew right away they were the ONLY ones we would want to do this job. We unfortunately had to change our wedding date due to an illness in the family and Craig and Lydia could not have been more accommodating and understanding. They have a pure passion and talent for capturing the love of not only the bride and groom but the love that is shared between family and friends. We chose to have a same day edit to share during our reception and it was the highlight of the day, my guest are still talking about how wonderful it was!! I could go on and on about craig and Lydia and the amazing job that they do but the point is your day will flash before eyes and although you may think you will remember every detail, you won’t but you will want to relive it and actually see it again and again. Having a videographer, Craig and Lydia in particular, was the best decision we could have made, we highly suggest you do the same!

Craig and Lydia were absolutely amazing! We met with them a few months prior to our wedding and after our meeting, we felt like we knew them for years! After all of the people we interviewed, it was a no brainer that Craig and Lydia were the ones for us! Their level of professionalism and creative direction throughout the whole process was impeccable. My husband and I were blown away by what an AMAZING job they did with our wedding video. We absolutely love it! They were able to capture every moment of our special day with such creative flair. The best investment we made in our wedding was with Craig and Lydia from Classic Video Productions because they captured the moments we were present for, but they also captured every moment that we missed because we were all over the place that day. We will have a lifetime to treasure our special day and relive those moments in time thanks to the superior video that Craig and Lydia produced for us.

The day of my wedding, the videographers were very professional and as promised, they stayed out of our way and "stole" their shots from the photographers. He occasionally gave me directions (e.g., when I was walking into my venue and heading to the bridal suite, he asked me to walk in a different direction so he could get a better shot). During the dancing portion of the reception, he did get a bit in my face with the camera, but I was able to ignore it after a few minutes. It was just weird at first.

This husband and wife team are friendly and affable. They were the one and only videography company we talked to because we loved their personalities that much and that is very important when finding a vendor.

I do love that they offer PAL format DVDs as I had family who traveled from Italy for the wedding, so we wanted to order a DVD for them. Also, we were able to work it out that we can get all of our raw footage if we provided a hard drive, so we did. They did not mind giving us our raw footage as they agreed that despite them taking the video, we are partial owners of the footage as we are the subjects of the video.

UPDATE (07-31-14): I finally got my DVDs in and we LOVE the results! My husband and I watched them and were like "WOW!!! So THAT'S what happened on our wedding day!!!" It was such a blur and so busy that we don't really remember it all that well. The shots of our venue were stunning. There was even a short clip of one of the ferries passing by on the LI Sound that they added in as filler that we though was really pretty and helped to really capture our outdoor, seaside venue. The music was very tasteful and fit perfectly. A bonus was that our guests barely noticed Craig there, so there were great candid shots from the reception. We definitely would recommend them to anyone who asked. We ordered the summary recap as well and we're glad we did we wouldn't want to subject our friends to the whole 2 hour video.

James and I as well as our guests thought it was amazing. Thank you!! I would definitely recommend them to anyone. ;o)

We have used Classic Video Productions and could not have been happier with their services. They promptly get back to inquiries, they are very unobtrusive at the actual ceremony and the videos could not have been better. We feel like we are right back at the wedding re-living it over again. The price is right and we would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a great videographer who is both professional and very easy to work with.

So many couples think a videograph of their wedding is not as necessary as the photography, but we actually love to look at our daughter's wedding video far more frequently than the photos. The film picks up so many little nuances of the day. Craig and Lydia LaPlante do a phenomenal job....especially the double camera of the ceremony is worth every bit of the extra cost....you see both the bride and the groom as they say their vows. You see all your guests talking and dancing and it is great fun to look at all the little things like the intros, first dance, parent dances, bouquet throwing, and dancing. The picture and sound quality is exceptional....you cannot go back and "retake" the day and we decided to put the priority on the video services and cut out other "fluff" like candy and photo booths. We really did the right thing.

Our videographer, Classic Video Productions (CVP) was amazing. Craig and Lydia did a fantastic job creating our slideshow (photo montage of us growing up that was played during dinner). We were married on April 20th and just received our wedding video, and it was so much fun to watch and relive our special day again. They captured all of the important moments from the ceremony to the reception. The footage was flawless and they did an incredible job recapping our wedding from start to finish. I am thrilled with what a wonderful job they did. Having a photo album is wonderful, but having a video of your wedding day is completely worth it. We can’t wait to watch it in years to come. If you’re getting married soon, absolutely call CVP, you’ll be glad you did.

Classic Video Productions is a great company to work with. Lydia was very responsive and even proactive in contacting us to make sure every detail of our video was worked out in advance. She even gave us key advice that really helped everything run smoothly. I highly recommend Lydia and Classic Video Productions.
